Representative Mike Lee, with others of
the Douglaa county delegation,-ia up from
Lincoln to spend Sunday at home. Friday
Mr. Lee Introduced a merger bill contem
plating the consolidation ot Omaha and
South Omaha and providing for th filing
of a petition of 10 per cent of the voter
and a subsequent general election In both
cities on the merger proposition. In a few
days Mr. Lee will offer another bill which
haa been prepared by John Paul Breen, and
which contemplates consolidation by plain
legislative enactment. The plan Is to have
th two bills tsken up for consideration by
the Douglas county delegation, the commit
tee on towns and cities and give a hearing
to those who want to be heard on either
"The matter will be treated In the fairest
manner possible," Mr. Lee said. "There
will be no attempt to rush anything
through and the delegation and committee
will give all an opportunity to present their
aides on the proposition. Then It will be
decided which bill will be . taken up for
The bill Introduced Friday waa th same
aa the one offered two year ago and which
drew a protest In boots from South Omsha.
Mr.' Lee thinks sentiment In th legisla
ture favors the passage of a merger bill,
giving the people a chance to rote.
Clarke Is Hopeful.
Representative H. T. Clarke, Jr., Is hope
ful for the passage of his bill providing
for the assessment and taxation of rail
road terminals for municipal purposes the
same aa other property Is taxed.
"Nearly every one of thos who thor
oughly understand the proposition Is fa
voring it and many are fighting for it."
Mr. Clarke said. "It la something of a
task to overcome a prevailing opinion that
th proposed plan of taxation for municipal
purposes will reduce the revenue received
by the' state and distributed for state,
county, township and school district pur
poses. The way, however, really looks en
couraging, and I hav every assurance
that the bill will pass."
